Celebrity Chef Tim Maddams, part of the famous River Cottage Fish Fight campaign, will be demonstrating his culinary skills using sustainable local fish, at a conference being held in Exeter on Tuesday, March 15.
Tim will be cooking mackerel baps for around 50 people at the Devon Maritime Forum conference on building a sustainable maritime environment for Devon. The conference, being held at the Rougemont Hotel, aims to focus specifically on the development of an action plan for Devon’s maritime environment and give delegates the chance to help shape a new future for Devon’s coasts and seas.
The issue of fish discards is being highlighted nationally on The Fish Fight, fronted by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, which aims to encourage people to eat and enjoy a wider range of fish and contribute to the sustainable use of our coasts and seas. The Mackerel Mission aims to educate people that there are tasty alternatives to cod and chips, and to persuade as many fish and chip shops as possible to serve fried mackerel as a new, sustainable and enjoyable addition to the Great British fish supper.
The Devon Maritime Forum is a key strategic partnership supported by Devon County Council and made up of people with an interest or stake in the coasts and seas of Devon.
